RISE ABOVE IT ALL
Ephesians 5:19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord covets the praises of His people.
Hebrews 13:15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise– the fruit of our lips that confess his name.
The Scene: An aircraft carrier at sea, launching an aircraft; represents daily activities of God’s people. The airplane represents the true believers in Jesus Christ. The plane has been launched into the air; however, it is having problems gaining altitude (stalling) but is slowly recovering its air worthiness.
When Christians find themselves struggling with circumstances, illness, financial problems and at a standstill (like the stall of an aircraft) darkness of day– and don’t know what to do. Praise is the answer. God is there, waiting for us to praise Him so He can help us get back on top, pull out of our stalls and fly high and straight.
The Lord says,”Thank me for everything, though this seems unnatural–even irrational. Gradually you will begin to ascend, recovering your lost ground.–choose to praise Me. Rise above it all–when descending (loosing altitude) praise Me! You will gain altitude (attitude).”
With God’s help our loss of hope, depression, anxiety have us wavering. Call on God with your praises and you will begin to soar!
Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary, they will walk and not faint.”
